A Brighton man has been jailed for domestic abuse, Sussex Police said this afternoon (Friday 16 March).
Tobias Denyer, 35, unemployed, of no fixed address, was jailed for almost nine months in total when he appeared before Judge Guy Anthony at Lewes Crown Court today.
His 38-week prison sentence was handed down a variety of offences relating to domestic abuse, Sussex Police said.
Denyer admitted the offences earlier this week at a hearing before Brighton magistrates on Tuesday (13 March).
He also pleaded guilty to breaching a restraining order issued by the Brighton bench on Monday 4 December last year.
Denyer breached the order by visiting Angela King, his 52-year-old former partner, at her home in Findon Road, Brighton, on Friday 9 February.
He subjected her to several hours of physical and verbal abuse for which he was jailed for 26 weeks.
Denyer received an eight-week sentence for domestic abuse common assault, to run concurrently with – or at the same time as – this sentence.
He was sentenced to an extra four weeks consecutively for failing to supply a saliva sample to test for class A drugs.
And he was given a further eight weeks to be served consecutively when a suspended sentence for this period was activated.
Detective Constable Tom Duffy, from the Brighton Investigations Team, said: “Sussex Police will support victims of domestic abuse at all levels and is committed to bringing offenders to justice.
“Denyer’s jailing is a stark reminder to all those who commit domestic abuse that positive action will be taken against them.”
